It looks like the Nike Dunk High Navy Black might’ve taken a bit of inspiration from one of 2021’s best collaborations.
With so many Dunks dropping left, right, and center, some colorways might start looking a little… familiar. Take the Nike Dunk High Navy for example. Freshly announced by the Oregon sportswear giant, we immediately feel like we’ve seen this design somewhere before, but we can’t put our finger on where…
Of course we’re only joking as the “Navy” is quite clearly influenced by Yoon Ahn’s AMBUSH x Nike Dunk High “Deep Royal Blue” from last summer. Boasting a sleek all-leather construction, the base is painted in a crisp white hue while deep navy panels wrap around the ankle, heel, lacing system, and toe box. Contrast black laces tie everything together, and a complementary Nike Swoosh glides across the side panels. Unlike the aforementioned AMBUSH collab, the check logo doesn’t shoot right past the back of the shoe, it instead joins to form a mini pull tab at the back for additional convenience.
The Nike Dunk High White Navy Black W is no doubt going to sell out fast. Expected to release sometime in 2022 in men’s sizes for $110 (which is $70 cheaper than the AMBUSH version!), it’ll be available to cop via Nike, SNKRS, and online and in-store locations.
